Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Luke Grimes join Magnificent Seven remake

Boyhood star Ethan Hawke, American Sniper's Luke Grimes and The Judge's Vincent D'Onofrio have signed up for key roles in the new remake of classic western The Magnificent Seven. 

The three join Denzel Washington, Guardians Of The Galaxy star Chris Pratt and Haley Bennett in the new remake, which is to be directed by Training Day's Antoine Fuqua. 

The original Magnificent Seven was actually a remake itself, with the original actually being 1954 Japanese action thriller Seven Samurai. 

The Western was released in 1960 and starred Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, James Coburn, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter and Horst Buchholz as a group of seven American gunmen who are hired to protect a small agricultural village in Mexico from a group of marauding native bandits.

The movie has a script which has been fine tuned by both Saving Mr Banks director John Lee Hancock and True Detective mainman Nic Pizzolatto. It is due for release in January 2017 in both US and UK cinemas.
